都市陌生人
台灣新電影時期選映

Urban strangers
New Taiwanese Cinema Selection

台灣新電影運動出現在一個躁動不安的時代,在如此一個艱難時代,能創作出傳世經典,與其於題材和拍攝上的開創性有密切關係。今次挑選來自楊德昌,侯孝賢和萬仁的三部作品,其共通點是大城市裡的「陌生人」。三部電影、三種況味、多少個不同的命運交纏。

The New Taiwanese Cinema Movement emerged in a restless era. The films, which were made in such a difficult time, have become all-time classics, because it is closely related to the ground-breaking themes and innovative shooting methods. This time, we select three films from Edward Yang, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Wan Jen respectively with ‘strangers’ in the city as the commonality. Three films, three situations, numerous different fates are intertwined.

一個年青人為了尋找他的妹妹,來到表面繁華熱鬧的台北,在尋找妹妹的過程中,卻看盡了都市的各種病態──罪惡、貧窮、家庭問題等帶來的孤獨空虛充斥整個都市,片中的小販、妓女等都彷彿被社會遺棄,可見八十年代台灣經濟高速發展下,都市擴張所遇到的問題。雖然城鄉關係是不少當時台灣電影的母題,但是像《超級市民》般,對底下階層與社會所謂的繁榮之對比並不多,而且今天我們重溫,甚或感同身受。
A young man comes to the seemingly prosperous Taipei in search of his sister. Crimes, poverty, family troubles as such are all he sees in this alienated city. In the 80s, Taiwan economy boom and city expansion caused problems in different aspects, especially the lowlifes. The hustlers and prostitutes in the film are very much abandoned by the city. Most of the Taiwanese films at that time deal with the city-rural relationships, Super Citizen, on the other hand, focuses on contrasting the lowlifes with the prosperity of the society. Even watching it today, we may share their feelings.
